Free community garden classes set

From staff reports

---- — Thomas Henderson of The Acts Project is offering a free seven-lesson series on community gardening:

• From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. every Tuesday from Jan. 14 to Feb. 25 at Logansport Memorial Hospital

• From 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. every Wednesday from Jan. 15 to Feb. 26 at Revolution Community Church

• From 11 a.m. to noon every Friday from Jan. 17 to Feb. 28 at the CLEDO community room

This seven lessons series is designed to fit most schedules. If a lesson is missed one week, it can be made up at another location.

The series covers 1) defining the purposes for the community/individual garden and 2) the design and plan for gardens.

Those who attend at least five lessons will receive discounts on seeds and/or equipment. For community garden groups, there is a certification process that may make the group eligible for further funding in the future.
